Well I was fixing a family member's computer the other day, an old dell that had no right(nor the proper cabability)of running windows XP, Dell=evil is another story for another day however.
She's not terribly Computer savvy, and a lot of folks who are equally if not less technologically incapable...Not to ramble she had a number of awefully bad AV programs on her computer, I got rid of most of them accept the Norton and Symantec stuff which would not Uninstall. I couldn't even, while I admit this to be a last resort and extremely sloppy, delete the folders due to write-protection on DLLs.
While I'm sure the liscense on the norton and symantec stuff is expired and I put AVG 7.0 on there as well as ad-aware pro and SP-2(though I didn't get around to the updates on the OS). I would sooner reformat the drive and start from scratch, but anyone who is up on Symantec and/or Norton offer any advice on removing such programs should I encounter them in the future?
I ramble, I know.
